The New York Rangers have shown interest in Dallas Stars winger Alexander Radulov, reports Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Radulov is in the midst of his worst NHL season, as he’s registered just three goals and 15 assists in 52 games while averaging 14:52 of ice time per contest. He is a proven playoff performer, though, as he’s totaled 49 points in 64 career postseason tilts.

The 35-year-old is a pending unrestricted free agent with a cap hit of $6.25 million. The Rangers have $6.239 million in projected cap space, according to CapFriendly, so they’re one of few contending teams that could afford his salary without performing major cap gymnastics.

Dallas currently holds the Western Conference’s second wild-card spot via points percentage. It’s unclear whether the club will buy, sell, or sit ahead of Monday’s trade deadline.

The Rangers, meanwhile, sit second in the Metropolitan Division and are well on their way to clinching a playoff berth.
